2000 Honda S2000 Convertible 2dr Convertible


Review

I've had my car for over a year now and still love every moment I'm in it. If you want speed in a car, this is the one to buy. Plus it turns heads everywhere you go. The only problem is that everyone wants to race me. Oh, well.


Favorite Features

I love that it's a convertible, especially living in California, and that I don't have to get out of the car to operate the top.

Review

Incredible car all around for what it was made for. Looks, performance, engine sound is perfect especially with an intake, HID's, digital dash, push- button start, good fuel economy, lets you stay in gear up to 9,000 rpm's if you need to, stereo controls very nice and conveniently placed by driver, seats are nice, car feels fast no matter what speed your going and your nice and low. Cornering is superb, you can go 80mph on ramp to highway all the time and switching lanes is nice too. Braking is very responsive. In winter make sure tires have lots of tread or you will be spinning out all over the road.


Favorite Features

I like the car and you can get used to it turning a few heads wherever you go. Besides clutch I never had to change or replace anything in car at all and I can drive aggressive at times- -I highly recommend this car.


Suggested Improvements

If you race at stop lights-clutch may not last. Revs under 4,000rpm=low power so it's not so great from a stop. You feel every crack in road and when you hit any bump in road, windows vibrate--but it's not really bad. I had year 2000 model-rear plastic window was no fun.

Review

Driving my car is my favorite part of everyday. This car is everything you could ever want in a sports car. Handling, power, 9k redline, convertible, new technology, and much more... all with an average of about 25mpg. Below 6k rmps this car is great driving, extremely fun, and still has enough power to get you where you need to go. Above 6k rmps (VTEC) is like a roller coaster ride. The car rockets fowards as you watch the digital speedometer climb, the rev limiter lights up and you know its time to shift for another 3k rmps of powerful sounding, head jerking, adrenaline rush.


Favorite Features

9000RMPS, 25MPG, Convertible, Preformance oriented 6 speed, handling, comfort, looks and comments from people like no other (almost no one has any idea what kind of car I drive... its an S2000. A what?)


Suggested Improvements

Sound system, radio controls, power (yes it has enough for some people but it just keeps me begging for more) factory turbo/supercharger perhaps?

Review

At least the 2000 and 2001 model have had a series of electrical and mechanical issues. Oil starvation, oil consumption, ECU failure, spark plugs backing out to name a few. Serious issues with bent valves as well. The problems are mostly quality control and design issues (some are driver error). Some of the problems lead to catastrophic engine failure. Honda is starting to deny valid warranty claims for technicalities. Engine repair is extremely costly due to lack of aftermarket parts and low quantites. s2ki.com for other testimonial.


Favorite Features

9k redline. Great looks.


Suggested Improvements

Honda's response to warranty issues related to design and quality control. No GPS (available in Europe and Japan). Spartan interior. Stereo cover hits knees. 2000 and 2001 stereos were pitiful.
